Rajamouli to direct Mahabharata trilogy also starring Bollywood actors

SS Rajamouli is currently busy in Baahubali The Conclusion. The prequel to one of India's biggest grosser will release in April. But now he is already planning his next project which will be one of the most ambitious film ever.

Reportedly Rajamouli is set to kick off a lavishly mounted trilogy based on the Mahabharata. He is inspired by Peter Jackson's blockbuster trilogy, Lord of the Rings.

According to a source close to the development, the filmmaker couldn't stop raving about the Mahabharata at an event recently, admitting that he was planning a film on a huge scale, using virtual reality extensively and recreating the epic with modern graphics. The film will be scripted in 2018 and made over five-six years on a budget of Rs 400 crore, with the films being simultaneously shot in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi for a pan-India release. "This time, Rajamouli plans to cast actors from the Hindi film industry as well as South stars," the source adds.

Considering the high budget, it will not be possible to recover investment only from Tamil or Telugu version so the makers are planning to make a film having pan-India appeal. Earlier Shahrukh Khan has also shown his interest to make Mahabharata. It will be interesting to see if they will collaborate for the same.

  1. My pic for Karnan and Arjuna

    Karna- SRK
    Arjunan - Hrithik
    Duryodhanan - Suresh Gopi/kicha Sudeep
    Bheeshamar- Amithabh Bachan /Mammootty
    Krishna- Akshay/Prabhas/Prithvi Raj( if Srk not playing Karnan then Srk)

  2. Karna-Salman
    Duryodhan-sonu sud/Akshay/Ajay

    1. u stole my words.bro.i thought of the exact star cast u wrote!!!
      except duryodan -sonu sud
      yudhisthir-akshay kumar
      shikhandi-karan johar

  3. Sunny can fit Bheems role. Arjun Hrithik only, Karna Prabhas, Krishna Aamir only. Yudisthir Akshay. Nakul and Sahadev : Salman and SRK.

    1. Hahahahaha Shahrukh and salman Nakul and shadev...bilkul Mahabharata banane ke lie strong actors ki zaroorat hai,in do bandaro ke lie nakul aur shadev ke role bhi zyaada hain

  4. they need Bollywood only to recovere cost
    kya din aa gye hai Bollywood k regional wale lead kar rhe hai or national wale piche ghum rhe hai
    aamir ne bola tha ki yadi rajamouli Krishna ka role offer karenge tab WO redy hai
    according to me starcast will be as
    Krishna aamir
    arjun salman
    karan srk
    bhim rana
    duryodhan prabash
    bhism amitabh

  5. If s.s. rajamouli will direct Srk then his life will totally change but I think the movie needs 6-7 years to be completed so there is no need of khans because they will not look young so young talented should be given chances like raveer,rabir,varun etc.....

  6. It is confirmed news that he will take aamir as Krishna ,bheem as salman ,srk as yudistra and akshay as karan
    100% true news it is

  7. 400 me se minimum 150 cr to amir-salman-srk aur akki hi le lenge fir movie kya 50cr me banayega ....

  8. Sharuk amir salman ye film nahi karenge.kyun k woh jante hai k telgu star main actor honge.akshay ritik ajay devgan,sunny deol ye log karsakte hai.
    Prabhaas ko top role milega.

  9. Karan=ranvir singh
